Rated 5 out of 5 by Reliabilityguru from I like orange I like the color and this truck or job site box is doing a good job for me. I bought this box fron Home Depot and requested that they fit it with a set of Master locks while it was still in the store. It took three tries to get a set of locks that worked. If this box is what is needed, let the selling store fit it with a set of locks before you commit to buy. I don’t understand why Ridgid does not provide a set of locks with the box. If they did, it would elliminate the hassle of having to do it yourself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pipefitta87 from Best box I’ve ever owned Box fit the description on Home Depot’s website to a tee!! Great box my only regret is that y’all don’t put the flexi shelf in them anymore! So I built one of my own! Box is well built but I wish the craftsmanship in the QC was better have a few pieces of buckshot from the welders leftover under the paint. Overall still a great box

Rated 5 out of 5 by willb4lsu from Great product and easy to use I love this job site tool box. It has a net in the lid which helps hold items well. it also has a removable small tool tray. It comes in handy holding everyday items as well. I would recommend this item to anyone looking for a job site tool box. My only problem with it is the locks can take extra time to lock from time to time. Future models could come with built in locks and work much easier.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ScottMc from Worked perfectly for what I needed I was in search of a lockbox for my business for UPS, FedEx, etc could drop packages in when I'm not onsite. Everything I found either cost too much or had way too many features for what I needed. Finding this was a God send. Not only was the price fair but it was perfect for what I needed it for. It's very heavy duty and so far it seems to keep the weather out. My only issue with this box is with the lock(s). For it to work smoothly I've had to do some grinding on the lock and the latch. Finding a combination lock that fit properly was a little bit of a challenage but I think that would be the same with any lockbox. It would be nice if they offered a version that had the lock(s) built-in.

Can I get an additional orange flexi shelf for the 2048-OS JOB BOX?
The part number is 7650 but please take note that a 2048-OS cannot accommodate 2 Flexi-Shelf’s as the box is designed that way. Thanks, RIDGID

Where can I purchase the 2048-OS?
I can't find anywhere that has the 2048-OS, Home Depot shows it as unavailable, but they only have the 48R-OS, which does not have the rear tray.
Unfortunately the 2048-OS has been discontinued and is no longer available for purchase.
